Health & Safety Law
Legal Liabilities in Emergency Medical Services
- Schneid, Thomas D.
- Taylor & Francis Ltd
This work addresses the collateral legal considerations that may affect emergency service organizations. Its primary focus is on the relationship between the emergency service employee and the organization. With the deterioration of "At Will" employment doctrine by Congress and courts, emerging new technologies, and the dwindling number of "unionized shops", emergency service organizations face the potential of increased litigation under new and novel theories in areas which were not even fathomed by emergency service organizations 20 years ago. Written by a lawyer for non-lawyers, the book is not consumed with the basic legalese that most books of this kind are. It seeks to inform the user of his or her rights under the law in a clear and comprehensive way. Topics covered include: workers compensation, negligence issues, employment discrimination, Family and Medical Leave Act, EMS, and privacy in the workplace. To provide extra guidance the text also provides cases exemplifying the issue and an appendix of websites that can provide further information.
